About Us

Welcome to Lauren London! We feature handmade jewelry from Susan Shaw.

Being located in the same city as Susan Shaw Jewelry, we are able to quickly and easily offer any of the pieces in her collection, which is why we offer more than any online site out there!  We stock every piece shown on our site, and all orders should ship in 1 business day.

Each piece of jewelry featured on our website is designed and handmade in America.

All of the items shown are either 24kt handcast gold plated or handcast sterling silver plated.  Handcasting is a plating method that is actually done by hand.  This method produces the most consistent and highest quality plating possible and is far superior to standard machine plating.  All items are plated over a lead-free, nickel-free base metal.

None of the jewelry shown on our website has plastic pieces.  All of the items shown contain actual semi-precious stones, some of the types used are genuine turquoise, quartz, coral, onyx and several others.

Cotton pearls are used on several of the items that are shown.  A cotton pearl actually contains a tightly wound inner-layer of cotton with an almost paper mache type outer layer.  They are extremely light weight, giving you the benefit of a big fun pearl, without any of the bulky weight

The necklaces featured are generally 15" and each include a 3" extender chain, so they may all be comfortably worn between 15-18".  Longer chains are listed with their actual length beside each item.

As is the case with all jewelry regardless of manufacturer or method of plating, alcohol based sprays (such as perfume and hairspray), if sprayed directly on to the pieces, may over time eat away at the silver or gold plate.  In order to preserve the original state of the jewelry, LaurenLondon suggests you simply apply your sprays before putting on any jewelry. 

If you have any further questions about the items shown on this website, please contact us.
